  • 4A Games has said previously that Metro Exodus will be more open than the previous games in the Metro series, but it won’t be a completely open world like that of Stalker. For one thing, individual levels in Exodus will be much larger than anything seen in the previous games. The biggest outdoor level in Last Light was roughly “200 meters to 100 meters,” Prokhorov said,. That means everything from weapons, attachments, and other loot, to “frozen stories” that reveal more about the game world and
    Metro Exodus is bigger than 2033 and Last Light combined

  • That’s why it’s surreal to see modder Onureth’s immaculate recreation of Hogwarts in Planet Coaster. What I love though, is the attention to detail present in every single room. Basically, if a room was shown on screen at any point in the eight movies, Onureth has included it. It’s probably one of the most accurate models of Hogwarts I’ve ever seen, and to make it in Planet Coaster must have been an immense challenge. If you have Planet Coaster and the required DLC, you can download Onureth’s Ho

  • The best gaming monitors for playing at 4K are Acer’s Predator X27 and Predator XB321HK, but if you’re looking for something more affordable, check out LG’s 24UD58-B. The name is boring compared to something called a “Predator,” but it’s on sale today for $229.99. LG’s monitor sports a 23.8-inch IPS panel with a native 3840×2160 resolution, and supports FreeSync to boot. It lacks bells and whistles such as HDR support and a built-in USB hub, but for the price, it’s hard to complain. It also supp

  • With The Division 2’s launch only a few weeks away, Ubisoft has unveiled the game’s clan system. It’s a big step up from the first game’s non-existent system, letting you make and manage them in-game where you can all work towards common goals and earn clan XP. Everything clan members do in-game will net the clan XP, which can then be used to level up the clan and get unnamed “additional benefits” and extra customisation options for your clan’s insignia. The latter’s stock will improve as your c

  • Backblaze, a cloud backup company that frequently posts HDD reliability reports based on its own usage, has offered up some thoughts on the subject, with an interesting conclusion. There are several caveats, not the least of which is that Backblaze’s latest blog post on the subject is very different from its typical HDD reliability reports. It doesn’t contain any concrete data on fail rates, as the company doesn’t employ SSDs to the same extent and manner as it does HDDs. While the blog post lac

  • Art Deco adventure Close to the Sun is the latest game to appear exclusively on the Epic Games Store. It’s a first-person horror romp that looks quite a bit like BioShock but contains no combat. You’ll be stuck on a boat with Nikola Tesla, and bad news: he’s a dick. Epic’s surely considering it a double win, then, with the game using both its engine and store. “To launch on the Epic Games store feels like the perfect next step and we are delighted that our partnerships with both Wired Production

  • Destiny 2’s new season starts in March, and it’s bringing some welcome changes, including a nerf to rapid-fire shotguns and significant tweaks to the excellent Gambit mode. Adjustments to Blocker types by deposit tier:Small Blocker = Taken Goblin with less health than the previous Phalanx. Medium Blocker = Taken Captain with more health than the previous Knight. As for those PvP changes, Bungie reckons rapid-fire shotguns and the full auto perk have become so essential in PvE that it’s made othe

  • Why is it that GTA Online cars get me so damn excited when in real life, I don’t even have a driving licence? But hey, regular players can spend February’s free GTA money to take the cost down a little. There are two sets of double GTA money/experience bonuses this week: Doomsday Heist finales pay out twice as much, as does the more recent Arena War series of multiplayer modes. If you’ve never tried the Doomsday Heist—like GTA’s equivalent of a high-level raid, I guess—facilities are 30 percent

  • Clearly Fortnite has made Epic’s bank account fit to burst, as it plans on doling out $100,000,000 in prize money across 2019. Starting on April 8 and ending on June 16, the open online qualifiers for the Fortnite World Cup will pit players against each other for a $1 million prize pool each week.

  • Airborne Kingdom has very quickly shot to the top of my list of management games to keep an eye on. It’s a peculiar combination of city management and exploration, tasking you with the construction of a fantastical flying city, which you’ll then sail across the skies of a randomly-generated desert, meeting tribes and attracting new citizens. The Steam page teases some of the possible ways you can keep your city from crashing to the ground. Having a whole city to manage between engineering projec

  • Square Enix has is having a publisher sale on Steam this weekend. It’s a big sale, too, with almost every game getting a 50 percent discount or more, including newer releases like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Just Cause 4 and Dragon Quest 11.

  • Anakin Skywalker, grumpy Jedi and soon-to-be Sith Lord, is heading to Star Wars Battlefront 2. The previous planet-specific default outfits will still be available, however, and you’ll be able to grab them as free unlocks. The two phases of clone troopers are being separated, so they can be selected individually, regardless of the battle. The latter phase has a respirator and a few other minor changes, but both phases look pretty similar. They were Anakin’s unit in the Clone Wars, and continued

  • Space Engineers, one of the best space games on PC, is finally leaving Early Access after more than five years and 200 updates. It will be one of the biggest overhauls it’s seen and, according to Keen Software’s Marek Rosa, Space Engineers will evolve from a sandbox into a game. “We’re going to take Space Engineers to exciting places when it comes to gameplay, immersion, and challenges,” says Rosa. It’s been quite a long time since I last played Space Engineers, but it’s still provided me with l

  • The developers of Scum, the open-world survival game with the dressable, growable, uncontrollable dongs, have shared their development plans for the next three months. If those plans go well, they’ll bring new vehicle physics to the game, base building, a complete overhaul of the inventory system, and reworks to the cooking and metabolism systems. The vehicle damage system is also being changed, “which means the car will react differently depending on whether you shot at its tire or the engine.”
